  • Cute museum, small and free. The guided tour is informative. But if you have a sensitive nose or allergies; I suggest wearing a mask inside as well. The place smells great, obviously, just really strong in my opinion
  • A glimpse in the past at the tools of the trade and some interesting products. The visit is free and, if you're lucky, there's even a free guide. Nice, takes about a half hour to visit. The only problem is that it's situated at the first floor and there's no elevator. Not advisable for movement impaired people.
